move to drop their nuclear program. members of north korea's national defense commission said the proposal was unacceptable. they called on the security counsel to retract economic penalties imposed after the country's latest missile launch and nuclear tests and demanded that u.s. and south korean commanders suspend military exercises currently under way in the south. the commission members also said the military forces and the people of north korea are closely watching what steps the u.s. and its followers will take. the remark suggests that there is still room for dialogue with the u.s. and south korea. >>> south korea's foreign minister is playing go between in an effort to keep an annual summit with japan and china on the calendar. yun byung-se in seoul says he will also raise the north korea issue. officials have been preparing to host the summit in late may. a diplomatic source saying young is expected to meet the other foreign ministers. the source says yung will try to convince the two ministers to proceed with the talks as planned. they believe it's too early to hold

. self-defense force pilots took to the air more than 300 times in the past year to respond to chinese activity, surpassing the number for russian planes for the first time. defense ministry officials say pilots made emergency take-offs against foreign aircraft approaching japanese air space 567 times from april 2012 to the end of march of this year. that's a 20-year high. the number of scrambles against chinese planes almost doubled from the previous fiscal year. they increased sharply after last september following the japanese government's move to nationalize the senkaku islands. a chinese government plane flew close to the islands last year, the first intrusion into japanese airspace since the sdf began keeping records. >> translator: at this point, i don't think china would make approaches that would turn into military conflicts with japan. >> but a former air self-defense force commander also says if japan softens its stance on territorial protection, china could become increasingly active. >>> south korean president park says enough is enough. she says it's time to stop the prac

of defense is currently spending $10 billion more conducting the war effort in afghanistan this year than was estimated would be necessary. from what we understand, in order to make up for this estimation the department of defense will have to pull from other funds from its base budget, which is difficult because of sequestration and the other long-term spending limits imposed by the budget control act of 2011. the problems with trying to budget and plan for a war a year in advance and how unforeseen costs can arise. at the same time a $10 billion is copulation is a little alarming. -- miss calculation is a little bit alarming. general, can you explain to us how that underestimation occurred? that we insidere u.s. forces in afghanistan under estimated $10 billion for our requirements for this year. i can assure you we have gone back and look at every dollar we have spent to make sure we have spent to good effect. we have significantly reduced the money we are spending in afghanistan. i will go back and take a look at where the projection came from and why we are in the position we are in
back. he replaced his defense minister . more importantly, he chade changed the rules of engagement. previously the rules of engagement on those islands, the disputed islands, the disputed area, was that for every round of incoming north koreaian al artillery, south korea was able to respond with one caliber lower. so he was out in calibrating, was that a 52 or 54 category? implet ng yong bok did away with that. he also said he ordered south koreaian fighter bombers to spond respond but was told by his military personnel he was not allowed to do that. instead, he would need permission from the united states. if you tuck to u.s. officials, they will say that is not the case. but at least that was the perception. and i talked to south korean intelligence and they said that was there perception that they were not allowed to use those weapons without u.s. permission. that has also been removed. the u.s. visited in 2010 and made a public statement, it is their planes. they can do with it as they see fit. and then privately there has been a change in perception. so even under his rule,

defense ministry has reacted to this, maintaining the line that any military provocation would not be just. it would be illegal and there would be a thorough and sterner response from the south korean military from any such action. if you read the last line of the statement from the supreme commander, there is perhaps some light in terms of talks. the south koreans have said no fault -- so far as north korea has rejected the request for talks. they said if they truly want dialogue and negotiations, they should apologize for all hostile acts. potentially maybe in a few day'' time we may see talks, particularly about the future of the apparently closed industrial complex were 200 south korean workers remain. to go south korea says they will inject more than 15 billion into the economy. says it willorea inject more than 15 billion into the economy. the money will be used to create jobs, build the stagnant real estate market and cover a tax revenue shortfall. pakistan's former president will not be allowed to run for the national assembly in upcoming elections. he had been cleared to campaign

for self-defense and for hunting and for sportsman activities. target shooting. i still go target shooting basically out my backyard in searchlight with my grandchildren. but i've always had trouble understanding why people need assault weapons to hunt or protect their homes or to target shoot. when the assault weapons ban came before the senate for a vote ten years ago, i called my friends, one in particular, who is a real advocate with -- on guns. and he said to me, you can't define an assault weapon. why are you doing this? you can't define an assault weapon. he convinced me he was right, so i voted against that. i voted against the ban. just about a month ago i called this same friend. i asked if his opinion had changed. generally no, but specifically yes, it had changed. he still opposes a ban on assault weapons. i said tell me why. i found his new reasoning absurd. and even though i care a great deal about my friend, he's headed in the wrong direction. so it caused me to reassess my position. he said do police have assault weapons? i said, yeah, some of them. he said if they have the
suggested the united states would reduce our missile defense system in asia for exchange -- in exchange for chinese help with north korea. it seems to me even though we are being threatened by nuclear attack by the north korean government, first of all is that an accurate statement? if so, explain that if you would. >> no. not an accurate statement. i think it was corrected while i was over there. there was reporting to that effect. what i -- there was no offer, no deal, no contemplation of it. what i did say publicly and i'll say it again, is that the president took specific deployment steps of missile defense in direct response to north korea. and it stands to reason that if the north korean threat disappears, there would be a logical question of whether or not that same level of deployment is necessary. all i stated was a sort of fact based on the rationale of the deployment itself. >> do you think that the united states should give aid to north korea of some type to temper their saber rattling, which they seem to do, about this time every year? >> no. >> all right. thank you for tho

in the looks completely defensive if you look to the upside or the down side of the s&p. is that the trend of the week for the market's overall to go into the defense of utilities? >> absolutely. some may go way. we are up with the indices' over three and a half months people take off the table and enjoy the money over the summer. you don't want to be out but rotate and me very careful. cheryl: en one heck of a day for these markets and the triple digits swing. also looking at the s&p there are nine stocks falling to a brand new lows and nicole petallides is watching that from the floor of the new york stock exchange. >> we have seen broadbased selling but economically sensitive sectors are doing the work with energy and financial and technology and some names hitting new 52 week lows with peabody energy and report back iran and going into the green with report mack ran. and going down below $400 the lowest levels we have seen since december of 2011 also newmont mining the best of the worst is what you need like health care or consumer staples that have concerns -- been able to hold on. th

.i.t. technologies cut across every sector of our economy and our national defense infrastructure. our relatively modest 20-year investment in nitr-d programs has contributed immeasurably to our economic and national security by enabling innovation and job creation in the n.i.t. and providing american students with the skills to fill these jobs. let's re-authorize this program today and ensure that it remains strong. i want to thank my friend, mrs. lummis, for reintroducing a bipartisan bill once again in this congress and i also would like to thank my staff and in sokolo for their hard work on this bill and i urge my colleagues to support h.r. 967 and reserve the balance of my time. the speaker pro tempore: the gentlewoman reserves, the gentleman from texas is recognized. mr. smith: i yield five minutes to mrs. lummis the sponsor of this legislation and who chairs the subcommittee of the science, space and technology committee. the speaker pro tempore: the gentlewoman from wyoming is recognized for five minutes. mrs. lummis: thank you, mr. speaker. i want to start by thanking chairman smith and
that says maybe you should move back into tech and out of some of those defensive consumer areas. >> we're not there. we've been advocating what we've been calling stocks with bond-like characteristics for better part of two years and we really pressed that at the beginning of this year. we are not ready to make that change. if through earnings season and as we get into the full april data set you really were to see a significant correction, probably in the overall market but certainly in those capital spend sensitive sectors, then you might get a window to do it. but we would not be doing that today. >> obviously, barry, then the alternative might be to continue to buy some of these defensive names and we see them at the top of the list today. the verizons and pepsis. don't you run into a valuation question there? how expensive do they get when even they are not a good alternative? >> we don't think valuation matters a whole lot for those stocks. we think it is more about the huge tentacle created by fed buying and now bank of japan. some of that buying weakened into the u.s. this is t
defense ministers have already begun consideration of the size and mission for a post-2014 force in afghanistan. one factor that will influence that decision is the size and capacity of the afghan security forces. in this regard, the recent decision by nato defense ministers to support maintaining the afghan security forces at the current 352,000 through 2018, rather than reducing the support to a level of 230,000, as previously planned, is the right thing to do. it sends an important signal of our continued commitment to a safe and secure afghanistan and make it feasible for us to have a smaller u.s. and coalition presence after 2014. the greatest challenge to afghanistan's security is not the taliban, but the pakistan- based sanctuaries for militant extremists, launching cross border attacks into afghanistan. pakistan has said it supports a stable and secure afghanistan. but its actions belie its words. the u.s.-pakistan relationship will not be normalized so long as those extremists safe havens exist on pakistani territory. another large challenge to a stable afghanistan is th
with the department of defense and others to address last year the department of treasury to qualify that as a hardship from the hamp program. you're racing another great exam how there can be a general consumer problem, the issue of tenants who are renting who can be affected by some of these problems that -- great example is when congress dealt with the fact that tenants can be ousted from their place they're living because the landlord is foreclosed upon even though the tenant may not know anything about that and they fine their belongings on the street. for the military, again, this particular instance has to do -- can do with change of station ordered or can do with, as you say, trying to improve your housing for lesser cost. so, if congress is going to lock that issue, we'd be happy to supply the experience that we have seen from around the country. that of, of course, a judgment for you all to make but it's another outstanding example how you can have general consumer issues ask then translate them into the military context but they are sharpened or aggravated the the situatio
in boston the defense against terrorists is putting some companies that are not well known names into the spotlight. jackie deangelis working that angle. >> good afternoon. the boston bombings brings attention back to security and safety issues here at home. there definitely are some companies that could see an uptick from increased orders in security software and equipment. oppenheimer highlighting video monitors and communications, interception solutions that enable realtime online tracking of suspicious activities. companies like nice systems and verint both leaders in that space. crt capital feeling other significant sporting events will respond to the boston incident by stepping up their security measures as well. crt adding osi systems, american science and engineering, and also flir systems to the list of their names to watch. there are also security monitoring equipment companies like honeywell. honeywelcome pets in this space with united technologies and tyco international which also offers various security monitoring technology equipment. ingersoll rand, they have a sec
